Turkey: How Erdogan's Pledge For Reform Collapsed In Five Months

His critics often joke that when President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an pledges democratic reforms, one should run away immediately. His latest charm offensive in November, aimed at repairing Turkey's badly-strained ties with the West and Western institutions, has proven that the joke still holds value.

"We don't see ourselves elsewhere but in Europe," Erdo?an said on November 21.

"We envisage building our future together with Europe."

Two days later, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar described NATO as the "cornerstone of our defense and security policy" and said that Turkey was looking forward to cooperating with the incoming administration under Joe Biden in the United States. Erdo?an also promised a bold package of democratic reforms.
